    yeah , it can run in 32/64 windows stand~



  • I get a error message every time trying to open EleksROM:

    0_1491162686214_error.png

    It says it's not a 32bit application.



  • Can somebody help me? Otherwise this machine is useless for me :disappointed:



  • Hello? Anybody here? Where I can download the 32 bit application?



  • I think I have found out how to flash the HEX to the board with my Mac.
    But when I connect the board via USB cable the serial port does not appear in the drop down?

    thank you! we are a little closer :)
    now I get this error when trying to flash the board:

    avrdude: stk500_getsync() attempt 1 of 10: not in sync: resp=0x0d
    avrdude: stk500_getsync() attempt 2 of 10: not in sync: resp=0x0a
    avrdude: stk500_getsync() attempt 3 of 10: not in sync: resp=0x47
    avrdude: stk500_getsync() attempt 4 of 10: not in sync: resp=0x72
    avrdude: stk500_getsync() attempt 5 of 10: not in sync: resp=0x62
    avrdude: stk500_getsync() attempt 6 of 10: not in sync: resp=0x6c
    avrdude: stk500_getsync() attempt 7 of 10: not in sync: resp=0x20
    avrdude: stk500_getsync() attempt 8 of 10: not in sync: resp=0x30
    avrdude: stk500_getsync() attempt 9 of 10: not in sync: resp=0x2e
    avrdude: stk500_getsync() attempt 10 of 10: not in sync: resp=0x39

    I tried it with different bit rates, but unfortunately it didn't work :(

    Can you use a virtual machine?

    I have several users doing that with T2Laser. Parallels for Mac seems to work the best.



  • If it is possible to flash the firmware and use a Mac, then I want to avoid extra costs for buying a licence for Windows and Parallels :)


  • Developer of T2Laser Software

    You can flash using AVRDude, it is available for a MAC and included in AvrMacPack.



  • I still get an error:

    avrdude: ser_open(): can't open device "wchusbserial1420": No such file or directory ioctl("TIOCMGET"): Inappropriate ioctl for device

    The serial port is available and connected.

    Is the command I am using correct?

    avrdude -c arduino -P wchusbserial1420 -p ATMEGA328 -b 19200 -U flash:r:ManaSE_v3.7.hex:r

    nope , the failed reason is cause our board are using arduino nano bootloader instead of arduino uno

    so you need to choose arduino nano

    and the correct command in windows is

    –C avrdude.conf -v -patmega328p -carduino -P + com + -b57600 -D -Uflash:w:\



  • Since EleksMaker Z's command line seems a bit damaged: I managed to reprogram the Mana SE board with the following command (one single command line):

    avrdude -carduino -b57600 -patmega328p -P/dev/tty.wchusbserial144420 -Uflash:w:ManaSE_v3.7.hex:i

    Thank you so much! It worked fine and almost one year after I purchased Eleksdraw I'm making progress.
    I also installed the driver for Mac OS but I have absolutely no idea how to get it run. I thought it will be installed as a new Printer. Can anybody give me a hint how to proceed?

    Thanks in advance :relaxed:



  • @nottingham82 ive crossed this problem but have no club about tables do they have usb ports?



  • Hello. I am no pro at Macs or PCs but. I have found a program called “sandBox”. This program lets you run PC programs inside of it or it’s the program that changes the code so that works on a Mac. So I watched you tube and did what this other guy did and to my surprise, I was able to install benbox on my Mac. I could not get benBox to work with the hardware the eleksdraw came with but, however. I had enough spare arduino stuff laying around. I am uses a 3 dollar nano and 2 a4988 stepper drivers and a break out board and it works pretty good. I have also made a couple quick improvements to my eleksdraw like install a spring from a ball point pen to help keep pressure on the pen when it is writing



  • Hi
    @EleksMaker Z

    Can you update these instructions to the current date?

    If I generate gcode with Inkscape then I send it with universal gcode sender? I have to add something at the beginning?

    Thanks in advance
